New creations, Market day, Baby Robins have arrived!


What kept me busy part of last week was making these bobby pins! I've got alot of old buttons and odd earrings, so I thought I'd add to my display at the farmers market.
See that grey sky? Well it was not a great weather day, which kept alot of people away. Rained on and off, but luckily the huge downpour and lightning didn't happen until we were on the way home in early afternoon!
We now have an overhead canopy, which really helps out when the weather is threatening and also allows us to make our display larger and more inviting.
There's my sister, chatting it up with a couple of very nice ladies. The older lady bought a beautiful crochet doily from Marilyn and the younger one a crochet tablecloth from my. Our prices are great!

My table of domino pendants, a bit of vintage jewelry and my newest creations, the bobby pins. I still have to improve my display, I'm not happy with it as it is.

Now for the birth announcement!
There are now 3 tiny featherless baby robins in the one of the nests under my deck! The lone egg in the nest beside it is still unhatched.
When I went to look yesterday,  there were still 3 eggs in the one nest, but one was jiggling about! First thing you know, it broke open at one point and I actually SAW the baby robin wiggling his way out of the shell! It was so neat!
This morning there were 3!
I'll be watching that lone egg and hope for the best!
Have a great day, I'm behind on my visiting and hope to blog hop later today or this evening and catch up with all of you. Seems summer, everyone is busy!

Your display looks lovely! I know your linens are the best having many of them in my own home. Looks like a lovely way to spend a 'gray' Saturday! Hugs, Abbie
